Joel McHale On Moving to Netflix After ‘The Soup’ and Being Asked to ‘Lay Off’ the Kardashians

Joel McHale On Moving to Netflix After ‘The Soup’ and Being Asked to ‘Lay Off’ the Kardashians
Netflix has poached another one. After nabbing Ryan Murphy, David Letterman and Shonda Rhimes, the streaming goliath has recruited Joel McHale, the former host of E!’s “The Soup,” who has landed his own weekly pop culture commentary series, “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale,” set to launch Feb. 18 on Netflix.

This isn’t the first time McHale has entered the streaming game. Amidst his 12-year run hosting “The Soup,” his NBC comedy “Community” moved to the now-defunct Yahoo Screen for a short-lived revival.

“According to the former Yahoo Screen executives, we apparently single-handedly brought down their streaming service, so I have to thank Netflix for allowing me another chance back on a streaming service,” McHale quips during a recent phone interview with Variety.

“The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” sounds like an updated version of “The Soup,” which was cancelled in 2015, but McHale promises the two shows are “totally different.”

Futile and Stupid Gesture Trailer Charts the Rise of National Lampoon

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming biopic A Futile & Stupid Gesture, starring Will Forte as comedy wunderkind Doug Kenney. While this icon might not necessarily be a household name, he co-created the National Lampoon magazine, along with co-writing comedy classic movies Caddyshack and Animal House. Kenney was at the center of the 70's comedy counter-culture which gave birth to Saturday Night Live and a whole generation's way of looking at the world. The trailer hints that the movie will take quite a unique approach, with Will Forte playing Doug Kenney in the 1970s, and Martin Mull playing the "modern-day" Doug Kenney... even though he's been dead for 37 years.

The trailer begins with someone asking Martin Mull, in character as "modern-day" Doug, who is asked by his interviewer if he could introduce himself as, "the man who changed comedy, but couldn't change himself," which lead Mull to respond with,

2017 in Review: Best Reunions — Boy Meets World, Roseanne and More

2017 in Review: Best Reunions — Boy Meets World, Roseanne and More
2017 may not have succeeded at unifying us as a country, but at least it brought some of our favorite TV duos back together.

Whether it was two actors re-teaming for a new project (like Ken Jeong did on Dr. Ken with two former Community stars) or two actors reprising roles they once played years earlier (like the leading ladies of Raven’s Home or the men of Psych: The Movie), 2017 was a very good year for people who enjoy recognizing familiar pairings.

(Disclaimer: Despite Will & Grace premiering in 2017, the cast technically reunited one year earlier for that mini election episode,

Netflix’s Judd Apatow comedy Love to end after season 3

The upcoming third season of Gillian Jacobs (Community) and Paul Rust’s comedy drama Love will be its last.

The Hollywood Reporter announced that Netflix had decided to end the Judd Apatow produced series after its third run, which debuts on the streaming service from March 9th 2018.

“I am really excited about the third season of Love,” said Apatow, “I think it is our sweetest, funniest season and ends our story in a beautiful way.”

Apatow co-created the series with Girls collaborator Lesley Arfin and Rust.

Have Netflix cancelled this too early, or was its absence from your browsing menu an indication that the show never had much viewer traction? Let us know what you think.

“The series follows nice guy Gus (Paul Rust) and brazen wild-child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, love and other things they were hoping to avoid. In the second season,

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars
Ten years after the invention of the “Drunk History” format, comedian Derek Waters is reconsidering how to describe the performers who get wasted, then narrate their take on a pivotal moment in history. “I want to start calling them ‘storytellers,'” he said. “It sounds more important. I think ‘narrator’ sounds like a voiceover actor.”

Indeed, the term “narrator” doesn’t quite do justice to what intoxicated celebrities bring to the series, which returned to television Tuesday night after nearly 13 months off the air.

Tuesday’s “Drunk History Christmas Special” will be followed by the show’s full return on January 23. It’s been a long time since new “Drunk History” episodes premiered, something Waters (who co-created the show with Jeremy Konner) acknowledged. “If I was a fan, I’m thinking the show’s over,” he said. “‘I thought you were dead.’ But that’s better like that than people going,

‘The Post’: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Favorite Cast’ Has Received At Least 58 Emmy Nominations
Sometimes, even Steven Spielberg has trouble assembling his dream cast. But that wasn’t the case with his latest film, the historical drama “The Post.” At a Q&A on Monday night hosted by the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, Spielberg told the audience that he’d been able to get every single one of his first choices. No small feat, considering that the turnaround time on the movie clocked in at just nine months, dating from Spielberg’s first acceptance of the script to its first November screenings.

“So often when I make a movie, I have my first choices, and I don’t always get my first choices sometimes due to availability or sometimes actors don’t like the script enough to say yes to me or to anybody,” he said. “But everybody I wanted in the movie, they were available and they all said yes.

Dan Harmon has been having talks about a Community movie

Community managed to tick off the first part of its slogan “six seasons and a movie”, reaching its sixth season before coming to an end in 2015, and speaking to The Wrap, creator Dan Harmon has revealed that he still has plans for a feature film, and has been speaking to the Russo brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) and Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) about that very possibility.

“I keep having conversations with the kinds of people that could make it happen,” said Harmon. “The Russo brothers moved from ‘Community to becoming industry shapers. So did one of our most popular directors, Justin Lin, who directed the first paintball episode. [Lin] in particular has always been jazzed about the idea of doing a Community movie.
